Big news!

It's been a long time coming, but I went ahead and spent time formatting my book so it could be available on Barnes & Noble. I received quite a few inquiries from Nook users, and had to direct them to the Kindle apps which you can download on your computer, phone, etc.

The truth of the matter is: most authors do not achieve substantial sales at B&N. Some get lucky and do decent of business, but the trouble of having to go through yet another process of formatting and opening separate accounts didn't seem worth the trouble. I don't know how search friendly the site is, or how books are ranked. I can tell you right since the book went up (which was sometime today) I have had 0 2 sales! I'm not holding my breath on taking B&N by storm, but now those of you who have wanted to read the series will have the option to do so.

I've since decided that I will make my books available at Amazon and B&N exclusively. Right now, "STERLING" is available for it's regular price of $1.99. It is currently on sale at Amazon. I don't know the B&N turnaround time for changing a price, but I'm going to guess based on how long it took to publish my book, it's not quick.

In any case, there it is! Hoorah for Nook users! I don't have one, so I'm crossing my fingers that the formatting is okay. I put a lot of faith in the previewer option and my basic knowledge of formatting for this retailer. If any Nook users purchase this book, I'd love to hear your feedback on how it looks on your eReader.

I'll be putting Twist up soon, but right now I have so much on my plate. Heck, I have multiple plates spinning at the moment. So, if you have friends who are Nookaholics, point them in that direction, and I hope that someone leaves that lonely page a review!
